Pameran Poskad is a biennial exhibition organised by the people from keyakismos. Two things about PP are: anyone is free to participate and each artwork needs to fit within a postcard-sized sleeve (hence the name). Upon submission of the application form and fee, the organisers will send out 10 plastic sleeves that you can place your works in (though it’s really up to your imagination about what you can fit in in those sleeves) and mail back or drop off at their collection venues.
This year, we thought it would be a fun idea to join as HEYKUMO and do something focused (Sarah’s good at that; I’m not so good). But against all/most odds, we did manage to finish our submissions before the deadline. Yay.
Today, we went to take a look:
Have to admit that cats are by far the most represented animals at the exhibition. Ha.
Purchasing at PP can be a confusing affair. Here’s a primer: find the tall dude in the big studio, request for a purchase form and let him know which artworks you’re interested in. He will write them down, mark the artwork (sleeve), and then you will have to make payment at the smaller room right next to the café. Collection will take place after the exhibition and you can arrange to pick them up or get them mailed for a small fee.
Pameran Poskad 2012 takes place from the 7-15th September 2012 at the Viridian Art House, which is opposite Liang Court. If you’re indeed coming from the mall, take the overhead bridge from the second floor. Opening hours are Tues to Fri – 1pm to 7pm, Sat & Sun – 11am to 7pm. The exhibition is closed on Monday.
Parking is available on venue, but is very limited (10 lots?). Exhibition takes place across two rooms (Viridian Art House and Galeri Utama) on both sides of the Viridian café.
